    Availability / How It Works

    Table Tents are high in demand. Each semester, there are about 2-3 times as many requests as there are spaces available. Every week has a wait list, some with over 10 groups.  But don't give up hope! Check this page every 3-4 days to see if all available spaces are full. If someone doesn't claim their space, it will become available to the next group in the list, and so on down the line until full.

    • There is a random lottery for the use of Table Tents, but there is not an appointment like Diag boards or Diag banner poles; groups either win one of the four available spaces, or they are wait-listed.
      • Immediately after the drawing (lottery) is conducted, the top 4 organizations in each table are identified as the winners for that week.
      • Other groups are listed in the order in which they were randomly drawn (wait listed).
      • If a winning organization does not claim its space by completing a contract and paying for the weekly space rental by the designated deadline, the first group on the wait list is given the opportunity to rent the space. They'll have about 2-3 days to decide, and so on.
      • Groups in italics are in a decision making spot, meaning that they are eligible to reserve the space but have a deadline by which to do so.
      • Once a group has accepted and paid for its space or failed to respond or declined, their line is bold and the opportunity has passed.  
        • If interested, those groups will have to get on the wait list again, at the bottom.
      • It is not uncommon for a group in 10th place or higher to actually end up reserving the space.
    • Each organization may not use table tents more than twice per semester. If your group has the good fortune of being chosen as a winner of more than two weeks, you must choose only two. If, however, the wait list for a particular week is exhausted and no one wishes to reserve the space for that week, groups may use more than 2 weeks per semester.
    • Separate reservations necessitate new materials, unless you have the good fortune of winning two consecutive weeks. If, for example, your group wins one of the spaces on 10/3-10/10 and again on 10/24-10/31, you will need to submit a set of inserts for 10/3, and later a new set of inserts for 10/24.
    • Winners are responsible for the space rental fee ($50 per week for student organizations; $100 per week for departments) plus the purchase price of the table tent inserts at the printer or copy center of your choice. Table tent inserts must be cut to size before submitting to SORC for placement.
    • To get on the wait list for any week, email the SORC Supervisor and specify (1) your group name and (2) which weeks you'd like to be added to.
    • Learn more about Table Tents (construction, content, and deadlines).

     

    If you are listed as a winner below, here's what to do:

    • To reserve a space in person, stop at SORC anytime before the deadline (during business hours).
      • Any member of your group can accept the space and start a contract, but payment must be made before the deadline.
    • To reserve a space via email, the organization's authorized signer must send a message to the SORC Supervisor before the deadline including the following:
      • I accept the Table Tent space on behalf of (organization name) for (date).
      • My phone number is:  xxx-xxx-xxxx.
      • My shortcode is (number), and I am the authorized signer for my organization.
      • A brief description of my ads is: (for example, "promoting concert" or "mass meeting" or "general promotion").
      • I acknowledge a charge of $50 (student orgs) or $100 (departments) per week for the table tent space rental.
      • I acknowledge the construction and content guidelines for SORC Table Tents and will submit materials that follow these guidelines.
      • If your group was a winner for multiple weeks, be sure to note which two weeks you'd like to accept. Each organization may use the space only twice per lottery period.
